Product Description

Warren Zevon's fight against cancer has been well documented in the media, as a has his extraordinary decision to use his time to write and record a new album. The result of that work, THE WIND, will be hailed as a masterpiece. An extraordinary number of Zevon's friends contributed their world to THE WIND - they include Bruce Springsteen, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmidt, Tom Petty, Jackson Browne, Emmylou Harris, Dwight Yoakam, Billy Bob Thornton, Ry Coolder, T-Bone Burnett, Tommy Shaw, David Lindley and John Waite.

Review

The Wind probes a wealth of moods and emotions that find Zevon more an excitable boy than the poor-poor-pitiful-me type. -- USA Today, August 28, 2003

Zevon at his best - an irreverent artistic achievement that stands as a triumph of his will to live. -- New York Post, August 26, 2003

Zevon's a lucky man in the sense that brilliant songwriters are granted a form of immortality denied everyone else. -- Rolling Stone, September 18, 2003
